Superheros Duty Cover

Myth by Name.
Villain by Nature.
Hero by Choice.

A fight between a second-generation superhero named Red Bolt and a villain-for-hire named Icarus goes terribly wrong, resulting in the drowning deaths of three innocent civilians and orphaning a six-year-old boy.

Racked with guilt, Red Bolt visits Cameron Wilson at the hospital every night and won’t leave the boy’s side until he falls asleep.

Befriended by a night-shift nurse, the man in costume begins to disclose what really happened after the fight—and why he feels the deaths of Cameron’s parents and sister fall on his actions.

A superhero didn’t survive that night, and Cameron and the rest of the city aren’t out of danger.

A fascinating take on the superhero genre that flirts with ancient Greek culture and sets up a world in which the heroes and villains are sometimes just people trying to make a living. In a fast-growing genre, Patricia Gilliam’s foray into superheroes is entertaining, borderline epic, and a reminder that even in a world that is larger than life, characters with heart matter more than anything.

  • Extinguished Worlds: What Goes Around
    Avert the Future. Protect the Present. Unravel the Past. Rescued from a collapsed skyscraper when he was eight, Caleb lives in the city of Cycad Cove, where battles between heroes and villains are almost commonplace. Unable to remember his early childhood, he develops an ability to envision upcoming dangers and sometimes even averts them. This comes in useful as he and his adoptive brother Dominic salvage the superpowers tech heroes and villains often leave behind. Along with their eccentric caretaker/boss, a.k.a. “Grandma,” the brothers can survive but want better for their futures. When an unexpected visitor offers Dominic and Caleb a salvage job that seems too-good-to-be-true, they eventually decide to take the risk. The journey from Cycad Cove to Perilous Island could solve all their financial problems and provide Caleb answers about his past–if they can survive it.
